Compose your Bathroom

I think most people would equate the word “compose” with music or prose, and not the bathroom. But that was before Hansgrohe‘s brilliant Axor Bouroullec Composer.

The composer collection allows you the freedom to design your bathroom in a whole new way, both aesthetically and functionally. Yes, in a sense, all bathrooms are composed when you select your basin and faucet options, and possibly a vanity. But Axor Bouroullec is different.

Yes, there are individual pieces. These pieces are designed to fit together and flow in a very organic way, almost like a multi-tiered puzzle with interchangeable puzzle pieces.

Axor Bouroullec is a collection that is not constrained by a rigid pattern. In fact, more than seventy (70) bathroom products – from mixers, accessories and wash basins to the bath tub – give you the freedom to compose the ensemble that best suits your individual needs. The position of the mixer is not predetermined: you can decide where to locate the spout and handles above, on top of and around the wash basin. Shelves integrated into the wash basin permit flexible positioning of the mixer or provide space to store your personal items. A collection which gives you the freedom to customise your bathroom as never before.

One of my favourite parts about this collection is the shelves. They are made from the same mineral resins as the basins, which is less likely to crack when drilled, making placement worry free. The shelves are designed to fit with the basin, shower, tub, or even on their own. A shelf can act as storage, become a functional element on which a mixer is placed, or even conceal the mixer to become its own faucet. The options are fantastic and will go a long way towards eliminating bathroom clutter creep!

You can use the online Configurator to design and save your ideal bathroom. When you’re ready to buy, there is a function that will show you retailers near by. Simply print out your saved design and they will take care of the rest.

Recycled Shipping Containers as Buildings?

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Have you ever driven by a stockyard and wondered what becomes of all those stacked shipping containers when they are deemed no longer useful for transport? Increasingly, many are being transformed into usable spaces, both commercially and residentially.



Inflatable Structures Help Solve Space Dilemmas

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Do you think air pumps are just for tires and balloons? I think AirClad would strongly disagree. For years, the UK-based company has been producing temporary structures for both commercial and residential use that inflate when needed (usually for three days to three weeks) and deflate and neatly store away until they are needed again. Made of fabric, the structures are designed to compress with a ratio of 100m2 of usable space to 1 cubic metre when stored.



Design for the Greater Good – Mattel Children’s Hospital

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Though some see design as a waste of time, the truth of the matter is that design has the power to change lives. It can brighten a sunken mood. It can envelope and bring a sense of safety. It can also unite; bringing people together to focus on a worthwhile task or cause.

Colour + Colour + Neutral

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

"For me, colour-plus-colour-plus-colour isn’t as good an equation as colour-plus-colour-plus-neutral. Adding a neutral keeps colours from looking childish and amateurish, and colours look richer when they’re paired with neutrals." -Betsy Burnham (House Beautiful, June 2012)



The Design of Yoga

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

September is National Yoga Month. While a yoga practice should not focus on the look of the studio, a space can certainly impact one’s practice just as much as the combined presence of those practicing within the space. As an avid practitioner and teacher, I have compiled images of studios in which I would love to practice.



Space Saving Tables
